You may mock but you wouldn`t have your GTR if it wasn`t for these. Consider them old Skylines as Mk1 Mexicos & your GTR as an Escort Cosworth & you`ll see what i mean. Also I bet them cars are still running today. Albeit as taxis but i bet they`re still alive.

No you're right Clairol. I've seen a couple of MkI Escorts around Sutton in Surrey. Both fully restored and re-sprayed etc. Unfortunately they've been lowered and kitted up too so not original spec. :-(

I love those cars. The later RS2000 is SO ****. I know someone who actually has a Diesel RS2000 Escort MkV

Good find Eddie; I thought all the photos of the originals were black & white :D

I'd still like a Mk1 Mexico in white with the blue stripes in my garage.

Got an old tattered pic of one in my Shed (garden that is not the MR2)...

Didn't the Scousers in Lock Stock drive a Black Mk2 RS2000 or was that just a Mk2 Escort..?

I soon will have another Black 2.8i V6 Capri as my project car in the garage. That will make peoples faces screw up.

"So your SKYLINE is your daily driver and the CAPRI is in the garage?"

LMFAO

R32, most will have it the other way round, but who cares individuality is the name of the game..

Eddie your right, was a 3.1.. And as my family originate from the right side of Hadrians wall (north) it was Rab & Mary Doll.. :D :D
